What is the size of a single bed frame?

Great for getting a good night’s sleep in a small room, our top of the range single bed frames measure in at 3ft x 6.3ft (90cm x 190cm/35in x 75in). This is the smallest bed frame that we offer. 3ft single bed frame sizes are a common choice for children and solo adult sleepers. Ideally suited to spare bedrooms, children’s rooms or small adult bedrooms, our single beds maximise night-time comfort where floor space is at a premium. Narrower than their larger counterparts, short single beds are a superb space-saving solution for sleeping in tight areas such as studios or small bedrooms.

What is the best mattress for a single bed frame?

Memory foam, latex, pocket sprung – our comprehensive single sized mattress range has everything you need for restful sleep. Firmness, size and filling are the key factors to consider when choosing the best single mattress for you. Perfect for all 3ft single bed frames, our 3ft mattresses offer comfort at a competitive price. Sized for a snug fit in conjunction with our single bed frames, our range of mattresses are designed to improve quality of sleep.

Unsure which mattress is right for you? Opting for medium firmness is a good rule of thumb for the undecided. Whether you’re looking for single mattresses for children, or specialist orthopaedic mattresses, we stock the perfect companion to your single bed frame.

What frames are available?

  • Metal single bed frames: Metal beds are a simple but effective design that can suit a traditional and modern bedroom. Single metal bed frames provide a clean and glossy aesthetic that can last for years with little maintenance.  
  • Wooden single bed frames: Wooden beds are a timeless design that will never go out of style. These wooden single bed frames are strong and sturdy, providing enhanced stability and a robust edge that makes them less susceptible to wear and tear.  
  • Upholstered single bed frames: Upholstered beds are modern and fashionable bed frames, that can help make your bedroom look cosier as well as luxurious. Upholstered bed frames are easy to assemble and maintain, offering a user-friendly finish that is perfect for any single bedroom. 
  • Single beds with storage: Storage beds are the best way to maximise floor space in small bedrooms. Whether it is an ottoman or divan bed frame, both can provide durability, style and size that can help you relax and unwind, knowing that your bedroom is clutterless. 

Which is the best 3ft single bed for me?

3ft single beds are ideal for solo sleepers, children, or as an extra guest bed. Because they’re only three feet wide, they’re also perfectly suited to smaller rooms as they have a reduced footprint. However, a 3ft bed will offer you as much comfort and support as a larger option, especially if you take the time to choose the right single mattress.  

A 3ft bed is approximately 6’3” long, so as long as you’re six feet or under, you should have plenty of room to stretch out without your feet hanging over the edge! You can add any kind of mattress to a single bed, in exactly the same way as you can with a double. So if you prefer the cushioned feel of a memory foam mattress or love that traditional pocketed spring sensation, you can find plenty of options that will fit a 3ft single bed. 

If space is at a premium then consider single beds with storage built in. Single divan beds are ideal for kids who want some extra space to stash their toys. They also work equally well as guest beds that are positioned in a spare room, providing extra storage areas to keep all those little bits and pieces safely stowed away and out of sight. If you’re choosing a single bed for an older child who loves having friends over to stay, take a look at singles with additional trundle beds that tuck underneath when not in use. 

Remember that if you order your single bed from MattressNextDay you can take advantage of our free delivery service across mainland UK.
